Matter of Opinion

Letter: Washington primary

I did vote. I did write a statement that I am not a member of either party on the ballot. I did sign my ballot. I did mail in my ballot. But my vote will not be counted because I choose to be honest. -- Ed Holmes, Spokane

We had a discussion about this in the editorial board meeting yesterday, and a couple of us are still uncertain what we're going to do with our ballots. I've heard of others besides Mr. Holmes that plan to do what he did.

Will the party declaration on the ballot keep you from voting on Feb. 19?
